Halibut Is Here!
If you like halibut, rejoice! The time to eat it is upon us! Karen Gaudette of the Seattle Times says the first shipments of the new season have begun to arrive from Alaska. "Halibut should continue arriving until late fall, when fishermen reach their permitted limits. Prices likely will fluctuate throughout the season, depending on the size and quality of shipments, but right now are between $18 and $20 per pound for steaks and $20 to $23 per pound for fillets."
